dmeventd — Device-mapper event daemon

Synopsis

dmeventd [-d [-d [-d]]] [-f] [-h] [-l] [-R] [-V] [-?]

Description

dmeventd is the event monitoring daemon for device-mapper devices. Library plugins can register and carry out actions triggered when particular events occur.

Lvm Plugins

Mirror
Attempts to handle device failure automatically. See lvm.conf(5).

Raid
Attempts to handle device failure automatically. See lvm.conf(5).

Snapshot
Monitors how full a snapshot is becoming and emits a warning to syslog when it exceeds 80% full. The warning is repeated when 85%, 90% and 95% of the snapshot is filled. See lvm.conf(5). Snapshot which runs out of space gets invalid and when it is mounted, it gets umounted if possible.

Thin
Monitors how full a thin pool data and metadata is becoming and emits a warning to syslog when it exceeds 80% full. The warning is repeated when 85%, 90% and 95% of the thin pool is filled. See lvm.conf(5). If the thin-pool runs out of space, thin volumes are umounted if possible.

Options

-d
Repeat from 1 to 3 times ( -d, -dd, -ddd ) to increase the detail of debug messages sent to syslog. Each extra d adds more debugging information.
-f
Don't fork, run in the foreground.
-h
Show help information.
-l
Log through stdout and stderr instead of syslog. This option works only with option -f, otherwise it is ignored.
-?
Show help information on stderr.
-R
Replace a running dmeventd instance. The running dmeventd must be version 2.02.77 or newer. The new dmeventd instance will obtain a list of devices and events to monitor from the currently running daemon.
-V
Show version of dmeventd.
